Mairead Maguire Deported from Israel


Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and anti-Israel activist Mairead Maguire was deported from Israel in the early morning hours on Tuesday, the Interior Ministry reported. The Supreme Court rejected her appeal of the decision to deny her entry into the country.

Maguire was arrested last week upon landing in Israel after a deportation order was issued her over her participation in the flotilla that tried to break Israel's naval blockade against the Hamas-controlled Gaza region.
